Oof, really wish #Mastodon didn't show a bunch of "filtered" messages with toots filtered. The UI is great for creating filters. Context, etc is very useful granularity.
But the whole point of a filter is to hide stuff. If the UI shows a reminder of all the content ur hiding and clutters up the tl, it defeats so much of the purpose.
If anybody knows if this has been implemented on a fork of the project, but otherwise might take a crack at doing that, cause this seems suboptimal
Maintenance of large software projects, mastodon Show more
Wow, there are so many open issues for Mastodon on github. And so many are super valid.
Hard to imagine managing (or even contributing substantially) to a project so large. Any open source devs have insights about issue management, triage, division of responsibility, etc when there's such an overwhelming amount of engagement / requests?
Thanks to all the fediverse maintainers and admins and mods! This shit is clearly a ton of work
Oh I do love reading a good book by a proper fire.
Cedar is a gorgeous fire starter
Oh hi there access to news feed that doesn't suck or involve a bunch of tracking or bookmarks or web browser shenanigans.
Thanks so much to The Intercept for including the entire article in your feeds!
Do folks on here have any favorite feeds? (especially ones that include at least a good excerpt and not just a link to website which sorta defeats a lot of the purpose)
Awwwwwww, fuckin' w000000t! Just successfully built my first #FreeBSD system system via source! I was on 12.0, but my understanding is that crochet requires system to be on current for img builds (https://github.com/freebsd/crochet#how-to-build-a-disk-image)
I wanna do builds for my Raspberry Pi 3 since it's Tier 2.
Def learned a lot throughout the process; god I love the FreeBSD handbook.
@AudreyJune just confirmed that basic text search is a thing. It will index stuff you've interacted with and your own posts. I've issued a few searches and it seems to work well enough.
I just added this to #OrgSoc but, know you may well have to get your instance admin to add the feature (there's some sysadmin prereqs).
The documentation around this is great and was easy to follow / get this turned on:
Image of quote from Fannie Lou Hamer:
"I’ll tell you why. I keep a shotgun in every corner of my bedroom and the first cracker even look like he wants to throw some dynamite on my porch won’t write his mama again...
“I’m gonna be standing up, I’m gonna be moving forward, and if they shoot me, I’m not going to fall back, I’m going to fall 5 feet 4 inches forward in the fight for freedom. I'm not backing off"
Dunno if #pleroma folks know this, but when i click through to view profile on new accts I might follow to check what's on there and I see this blank screen.
Not sure what's up there, but also noticed that the site doesn't load at all sans js (check out the pics below for how site shows up in lynx with pleroma and #mastodon respectively)
Not at all throwing shade, I just have noticed having issues engaging with pleroma instances and thought it worth noting
Lol from cyberpunk on fb.
okay, #fediverse corruption nearing completion. ya know, just felt that ditching fb, google, amz, etc didn't cast me far enough into the realm of niche digital spaces.
Tired of all the flashy images? Bloated js / sketch tracking cookies? Sick of firing up a GUI and - god forbid - chrome cranking 1G of mem just to read your bff's blog? We got you!!
Tunnel the net w/ us on gopher!

Anybody in #pdx trying to buy a nice piano for cheap?
This is a gorgeous 1910 Ludwig upright grand that plays beautifully (no issues at all with strings, tuning block, keys, etc)
I bought it for 3k; willing to sell for $500 cause of a tiny bit of damage and i really could use the $$ for moving expenses. has a cpl nicks and needs a tiny bit of work cosmetically and on pedals.
Must be down to come pick up. Due for a tuning but it's held a great tune for ridiculously long
Omgomg #SuperSmash !!!
Community organizer, computer programmer, unix nerd, anarcho-socialist (#nobot plz)
OrgSpace is a social media instance on the Mastodon network built by, and for, community organizers. We believe social media is a critical tool for political education, relationship building, mobilizing folks; however, facebook, twitter and other mainstream networks have opted time and again for profit and commercializing personal data regardless of the consequences.
Mastodon is a decentralized, but federated network. This means that when you join organizing.social, you get to interact with everyone you choose to on the wider Mastodon network; but you also get to see locally scoped content (from this instance) and help build a network particularly focused on building community and organizing those around us against oppressive systems and towards a society rooted in equity and global justice.
Setting up this instance has been a project of PDX Outreach for Justice, but we want this to be a global network of organizers and welcome moderators, admins, and engineers, and others who would be interested in contributing and shaping this process
